Beautiful bike!

Love the tank/seat/frame line. Conversion to kick-start, too?! Nice!

Still working on simplifying wiring and the front end at this point. There is a lot that goes into these builds and I am trying to do it one at a time while keeping the bike functional (it's my only ride at the moment), but I knew I could be putting myself in the position to do the ol' one step forward, two steps back once I get around to the frame.
Yeah I hear ya. I have already gutted the switch pods and handlebar wiring. Just put a Whiskey throttle on it last night actually to further clean up the bars. Slowly but surely chopperizing itself.

Wow, nice bike. There is very little I would change about it to suit my tastes if it were my build. Super sharp. Thanks for sharing! What kicker kit is that?
